Poetae Comici Graeci

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Poetae Comici Graeci (PCG) is the title of a collection of fragments on ancient Greek comedy that was edited by Rudolf Kassel and Colin Austin . The nine-volume company replaces the outdated collections Fragmenta Comicorum Graecorum by August Meineke (1839–1857), Comicorum Atticorum Fragmenta by Theodor Kock (1880–1888) and Comicorum Graecorum Fragmenta by Georg Kaibel (1899). From 1983 to 2001 eight volumes were published by Walter de Gruyter . Volume 6.2 ( Menander ) was named one of the 1998 International Books of the Year by the Times Literary Supplement .

Volumes 3.1 and 6.1 (handwritten Aristophanes pieces , papyrus finds from the Menander pieces ) are still pending (as of March 2020). Until his death in 2020, Rudolf Kassel worked on volume 6.1, together with Stephan Schröder .
